    Sel Marin fantastic stuff, picked up a bottle recently for the warmer weather, and can't get over how good it is and I don't normally like aquatics.

    It's like the smell of sea spray when applied (with a bit of a seaweed whiff for realism [but in a good way]) and later in drydown it's like sun dried skin after a dip in the ocean.

    Never thought I'd be this effusive over an aquatic!
    Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...

    Millesime Imperial and Hugh Parsons Blue are two standouts I really enjoy - relatively uninspiring genre overall though for me.

    My two overwhelming favorites are Creed Millesime Imperial and Heeley Sel Marin.

    And if you don't mind exceedingly liberal spraying, Creed's Erolfa is enjoyable.

    and



    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte

    The box and bottle says Millesime Imperial. Either way, it smells really good.

    My favorite was always Clinique Happy for Men but right now I really like Creed Pure White Cologne. Wonderful new discovery. Sel de Vetiver is great too depending on whether you consider it an aquatic.

    The marine fragrances i sometimes wear are Horizon Guy Laroche (not a sheer aquatic but a green/aromatic with marine elements), Kenzo Pour Homme (another hybrid), New West for Him, Coney Island Bond. I love also Sel de Vetiver which is not properly to classify as an aquatic one in my humble opinion.

    I've never tested many aquatics. I owned Kenzo once, but I sold it as soon as I could. I don't want to smell like the crowd.

    I don't like gourmands either. The only "edible" perfume I have is miel de bois by Serge Lutens. It is pure honey but I like it.
